Eyes Wide Open
In the last five years, Mario Calabresi has collected a series of interviews to renowned international photographers. The result of his meetings is this book: an exciting dive into history through the images and the words of great witnesses that have captured and lived some of the most tragic and intense moments of our past. With an engaging prose, able to transmit the strength and the emotions of the protagonists, Calabresi guides the reader in a fascinating journey through time, offering him an incredibly privileged perspective: the eyes of photojournalists who have created the common historical memory. So, here it is Paul Fusco that narrates Bob Kennedys funeral, or Josef Koudelka that describes the first moments of the arrival of the tanks in Prague, or John Morris that is still moved remembering his friend Robert Capa, and then Salgado, Erwitt, McCullin, Webb, Abbas, Pellegrin, Scianna and Basilico. At the end, a chapter about three young photojournalists: Alessio Romenzi, Fabio Bucciarelli and Pietro Masturzo.
